New Madurai city branch of TNSTC-Madurai

Madurai region of TNSTC-Madurai has the depots like Nagar depot(along with Puranagar inside TNSTC-Madurai HO in Bye Pass road), Ponmeni, Ellis Nagar, Pudhur, Tiruparankundram, Sholavandhan, Tirupuvanam and Melur mainly for running city bus services in Madurai city. Now surprisingly saw the old TTC BS being converted as new Madurai city branch. Saw TNSTC-Madurai flex boards for couple of weeks and suddenly the SETC counter got moved inside Periar BS. Sometime i remember seeing some plans for developing this old TTC BS into commercial complex to generate some revenue for SETC. But this new depot is totally a surprise.

Based on TNSTC-Madurai website, old Nagar branch is renamed as Bye pass City Branch, and the new depot is called as Madurai city Branch.
